Penshurst Wetland Gardens, Birds, Lake, Picnic Area, BBQ & Address, VIC

The gardens were established in 1995, and its design was inspired by the ‘never failing spring’. As a result, the natural wetlands and stunning environment are alive and flourishing all year long. It features narrow gateways that lead you to a lake, and a gazebo located on the water’s edge is a great spot for picturesque views of the Grampians.

The lake of the Penshurst Wetland Gardens is filled with Swamp Cypress, which eventually will create a natural canopy above the footbridge that connects the many waterways. Aside from native Australian plants, the wetlands are also home to many European, Asian, and American plants.

The gardens are also home to tranquil public spaces and amenities that are enjoyed by families and friends. A children’s playground will keep the kids entertained for hours, while a bowling green and swimming pool not too far from the gardens is a great way to get fit while taking in views.

Of course, you can also unwind with the gang with a picnic or BBQ; the site is equipped with toilet facilities and a car park for your convenience. The nearby caravan park is pet-friendly and equipped with laundry facilities as well.

The Penshurst Wetland Gardens is located at Chesswas Street in Penshurst. It is open 24 hours a day, and entrance is free of charge.
